My 'Spring Carnival' CC Challenge!

The 'Spring Carnival' Cyber Crop is now underway at Scrapbooking Top 50, and NO it's not too late to join in! All four challenges have now been posted and you have until Sunday 27th November to complete them. This is our last crop for the year (because who has time to scrap in December right? LOL) and there are some fantastic prizes to be won, so why not give one (or all) of the challenges a go? You can find all the challenges listed HERE

My challenge for the crop was inspired by the centrepiece of the Spring Carnival - the horses! The challenge is to scrap a pic/s that include an animal and to also include something chipboard. The winner of my challenge will receive an awesome prize from Handmade Halo (and yes, I am only slightly biased!)

Here is my sample layout...

I used Pretty Little Studio 'Antique Store' pps and embellishments for this LO, which are available exclusively in Australia from Handmade Halo. I also used a fabric button (from the 'Country Cottage' set) and some bookprint butterflies, both from my own Lovelybug Bits n Bobs. The flower is Prima and the gorgeous woodgrain cardstock is from Coredinations (LOVE it!)

The Halo "Mojovator"!?!

This month sees the introduction of the first ever "Mojovator" from Handmade Halo. So called, because we don't want to add to your list of chores, but rather give you an opportunity and inspiration to create something for YOU!

Our first mojovator is a sketch, designed by our very own talented DT member Em Stafrace. In addition to using Em's sketch as mojo-vation for your project, (and in keeping with the Halo theme), you will also need to include a set of wings on your creation. Here is the sketch...

For my LO, I used the Pretty Little Studio 'Antique Store' pps, which are available exclusively in Australia from Handmade Halo. I have also included a cute little Halo ladybug pebble, and one of my own (soon to be released) Lovelybug Bits n Bobs buttons.

To see the rest of the DT's take on this month's mojovator, and to find out exactly how you could win some gorgeous Halo goodies of your own, pop over to the Halo blog HERE for all the details.
Get your mojo running!!!

"Time is White" Challenge!

I can't believe we are so close to the end of the year!!! That being said, it's new challenge day again (who doesn't love that right?) and to kick it off, here is my November Monthly Challenge for Scrapbooking Top 50. This month I have a word challenge for everyone and I am calling it the "Time is White" challenge. The challenge is to create a LO using the word "time" in the title / subtitle / prominently in the journalling + include a clock / watch + a white cardstock base. (Now the challenge name makes sense doesn't it?)

Here's my take on it...

I have used Pretty Little Studio 'Antique Store' pps & coordinating embellishments, all available from Handmade Halo. I have also included a handmade 'Ropeable' flower from Halo, and teamed it with some Kaisercraft transparency (the clocks - which might be a bit hard to see in the pic?). I created the background using glimmermist and my 'Woodgrain' Crafters workshop template. (How I love those two things!)

I do hope you will give my challenge a go this month. (You might even win an awesome prize!) You can pop over HERE to see what other challenges the DT girls have on offer this month!
